done by a john mccain republican surrogate named mitt romney. >> inside a campaign, what do you get on the inside that we don't get on the outside because you're doing your own polling? >> you see the widest array of polls. you look at mason dixon that cake out yesterday. you take that apart, it's close to the internal polls. it shows that john mccain is leading in the states that he's got to lead in. we're going to pick up pennsylvania. we have a good shot in virginia, new hampshire, new mexico, nevada, that's the pathway to victory for john mccain. we're excited. we're hoping to see a lot of people out there in chicago on election night with barack obama experiencing a long, cold night, that john mccain won. >> it's nice he wishes physical discomfort on his enemies. but notice what exactly he was so confidently predicting there. the day before the election in 2008, it was mitt romney. these were his predictions for states that john mccain was definitely going to win. >> john mccain is leading in the states he's got to lead in like ohio and florida. we'll pick up pennsylvania. we t
, ed. this moment really reminds me of that moment in 2008 when john mccain had his crazy reaction to the economic crash and wanted to suspend his campaign and go back to washington and looked like he doesn't understand what was at stake. mitt romney looked ridiculous at that rally today. he was talking about cleaning up a football field of rubbiage. and i think it's civilly when you can't play politics. right now, we're having a debate over the future of our society. and things like this disaster relief are really quite pertinent. so it's not that he can't campaign, but go out there and take questions about what you want to do with fema. go out and there and defend your me first, dif involve to the states attitude. but he's scared and e he won't do it. >> this storm really seems to have taken the shirts off a lot of politicians. what we're really making of all of this, here's chris christie in a news conference before the storm yesterday. >> i should call him directly at the white house and he was going to be there and i should just not worry about dealing with anybody else, to ca
john mccain demanding justice and he joins us live this hour. >> steve: plus sandy ripping apart communities all across the eastern northeast, but she could pack a political punch as well next tuesday. dick morris is next with what sandy means for the election jenna shared her recipe with sharon, who emailed it to emily, who sent it to cindy, who wondered why her soup wasn't quite the same. the recipe's not the recipe... ohhh.

[ female announcer ] the secret is swanson. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about a
event of the day in a county that senator john mccain won in 2008 with 60% of the vote. kristen welker is traveling with the president. she joins us now. as i mentioned, lima, 60% of that vote went to john mccain. is the president tailoring his message different than what we heard today, kristen? >> reporter: good afternoon, tamron. i think we will hear a similar message in lima we heard during the president's first two stops today. he's talking about the fact he had improvements and the latest unemployment report to make that argument, but he's really focusing on the auto bailout, the auto industry specifically slamming mitt romney for his recent claims that jeep is shipping jobs to china. the president said the companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. it's worth noting that papers in this area have come out and said that those claims are false. the romney campaign continues to stand by their ad that says the auto bailout will lead it to shipping jobs overseas. that's the big focus today. why? it's an issue that resonates with the voters here's in ohio. one out
. i mean this moment really reminds me of that moment in 2008 when john mccain had his crazy reaction to the economic crash and wanted to suspend his campaign and go back to washington and really looked like he didn't understand what was at stake or what was going on. mitt romney looked ridiculous at that rally today. i mean he was talking about cleaning up -- one time he had to clean up a football field of rubbish and comparing that to disaster relief and i'm not somebody -- i think it's kind of silly when we say we can't play politics at this moment. there's always politics and right now we're having an election. we're having a debate over the future of our society and things like disaster relief are really quite pertinent, so it's not that he can't to me it's not that he can't campaign but go out there and take questions about what you want to do with fema and go out and defend your me first, devolve to the states attitude. it's a good time to have a debate about it but he's scared so he won't do it. >> you know, this storm really seems to have taken the shirts off a lot of politic
them himself. john mccain even went as far as to blast president obama on the benghazi attack. one other issue is romney's thoughts on fema. here he is yesterday. >> [ inaudible ]? >> romney: why -- >> why don't you answer any questions about fema. >> nothing to say. more bill coming up after the break. highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart.

condoleezza rice and senator john mccain this evening at 7:30 eastern and we will have that live on c-span. while we wait to hear from president obama in ohio, part of this morning's "washington journal," good morning to you. i want to assure you that 2012 battleground map we have been featuring for the last week or so here on the "washington journal." assuring the swing states in this election. this morning on the washington journal, we want to hear from the voters in the non-yellow states. everyone else in a blue, give us a call. we want to hear what you think about campaign 2012. our phone lines are open. we have already been getting a few comments on facebook. we want to start of christopher's from minnesota, he writes in, the electoral college needs to go away. john from maryland -- in other non-swing state writes -- my view is that the media has made too much out of the debates and hasn't focused enough of its energy on the ground with actual voters and personal stories. and finally, my goal from massachusetts writes, since my vote will not matter, have put my energy into gettin
internal targets and the romney campaign is doing much better than john mccain did in 2008. that secondary aspect, doing better than john mccain is insufficient. john mccain did virtually nothing in early voting. the romney campaign is doing much better but it's a low bar. the obama campaign feels very good about its own metrics and believes by the time election day actually arrives, they'll have sizeable leads in new hampshire, iowa, nevada and possibly even in florida, enough to carry those states across the finish line. >> major, thanks. cbs is projecting that four out of ten voters will have voted by election day. >> 31% in 2008, could be as high as 40%. this is becoming a huge and important trend in american presidential politics. >> thank you, major. >> major garret, thank you so much. >>> time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. los angeles times says a gunman opened fire at a halloween party on the university of southern california campus. four people were wounded and two people have been detained. officials shut down the campus and urged students to
me ask you about john mccain. we have recent example of john mccain, a recent example where a candidate called for an end to the campaign. he was going tocampaign. he was going to put up debates and everything else in the last election and he looked a little foolish. so tell me how that works. >> he did. >> explain. >> it's a careful balance here. when you say that you want to halt everything because there's a challenge, a disaster, an economic challenge, you better have some reason for it, something that is coming of it, and you also need to know when to restart. and that's going to be the great challenge over the next couple of days. look, the president of the united states is in an ideal position so long as the response to this disaster is well done. if there's a mess-up, as you have referenced earlier in this show, like in chicago in '79 with the snowstorm, that can blow back on the leader. but if this goes well, if the president comes off well, he gains an advantage here. and for mitt romney, the great challenge is deciding when to go back into a campaign mode and there
. i think you want to win and i told governor romney's people with all due respect call john mccain and call senator -- oh my god, i'm so old, kerry in massachusetts because both men said to me, we should have done the interview with you the last week. both of them. you are crazy not to take that opportunity. they made a decision. >> bill: not yet. it's still in play. >> do you want to put any just between us, i don't want the folks at home listening to this. do you want to put any money on this? >> bill: i think romney might do it. i think he might do it? >> and president obama. we give that a zero? >> bill: i don't know. it would have to be his call. he would have to make it. the president would have to make it himself. >> can i ask you a quick question? >> bill: yeah. >> do you think that more than a few reporters are sort of wishing at some level that the hurricane had not hit two blue states like new york and new jersey but it hit iowa and ohio. >> bill: it did hit ohio though. it's going to matter in ohio. >> i mean direct hit, you know. >> bill: yeah. >> i think that -- i'm s

day. essentially, obama won the election before election day. john mccain won the election day vote but obama had already won the election in the early voting period. we have already had 1 million people voted north carolina. -- voters in north carolina. at this point, the democrats are doing better on the early voting, it appears. we don't have a vote count so we don't know exactly what the tally is. if you look at things -- we know things like number of active americans who have voted and that is up from the percentage who voted in 2008. percentage is greater this time at this juncture that was in 2008. the number of younger voters who tend to be more for obama than for running a, a greater percentage is up this time compared to 2008. those are all good signs for the obama campaign. but, what that will mean at the end, we don't know but the obama campaign had a good signal from that. host: we have a chart from an article in the "atlantic." it talks about absentee ballot request in north carolina. host: the democrats made a gain of about 9000. in your observations, do you see more

: this is the 2008 presidential race. barack obama way ahead of john mccain. and it is my understanding that in the polls recently for this election that romney is inching closer to obama, is th correct? >> it is correct. it is in within the margin of error. >> what do you make of the surge? minnesota has been a blue state what do you make for romney? >> it is a conservative minnesota, gretchen. in 2010 minnesota won both studies of the legislatures, republicans did. we are seag a move to a conservative trend in minnesota. >> gretchen: the governor seat went to a democrat in a tight, tight election and senator al franken won with 312 vote,many of them disputed and michele bachmann is in a tight race or do it see it that way? >> i have known mitch mitch for 10 years and one of the most dedicate hard working conservatives we have in congress and i believe she will prevail in that race. >> gretchen: she's up against tom graves. we have mitchell bachmann, republican 51 percent . jim graves 45 percent. and so that's outside of the margin of error . they had a recent debate i believe. did the
, and understands that running is very hard on families. it is very tough. after the last campaign when john mccain won, made this recording for my husband. sweetie, i am never doing this again. he laughed. he said say that after every pregnancy. true, true, and yet i have five boys. i will tell you when the fifth boy -- those are the days when you never knew when you were having -- when he popped out, i said that ist and all i got. it was a long time waiting for the first granddaughter. i have five sons. you had a daughter. i have 18 grandchildren. guess how many are boys -- 13. i am surrounded. by the way i have all brothers. i had to learn how to play football and baseball, and play and roughhouse and everything else. life is interesting, and the boys taught me an amazing lessons, and i appreciate them so much. i could have nearly killed them when they were kids, but they taught me how to be open and how to be open with your feelings and how to express your feelings openly. i was shy. the thought that i am even up here on the stage with a microphone in my hand is wonderful. i spent my entire ele
was beating john mccain in early voting by 19 points. democrats are famous for their get out the vote effort that precedes election today, early voting tends to favor them. look how it did in 08 obama 19 at that time. fast ford today, governor romney is beating president obama by 7 points marking a 26-point slide for the commander-in-chief. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on fox news.com. is that correct, chris? the early voting tends to favor the democrats. it seems like republicans don't like early voting, they complain about it because it favors the other side but not so according to this poll in this election. >> that is exactly right, megyn. the truth is democrats have long pushed to extend voting as long as possible. no election day, they want election month. they want more times to get their voters to the polls. there are more democrats than republicans. republicans vote with higher intensity usually than democrats. when we see a pupl lik number like pew's that the republican candidate has gone ahead when you're talking about a challenger
john mccain made a late play for pennsylvania campaigning there sunday before election day and went onto lose the state by over ten points. new nbc polls shows president obama over mitt romney. in wisconsin, president obama polled at 49% with mitt romney at 46%. in new hampshire president obama polled at 49%, mitt romney at 47% and detroit press poll and cnn poll showed in colorado president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 48%. tonight president obama has an 81% chance of winning re-election. alex cwagner, so mike bloomberg somehow finally made up his mind. everyone is focused on the climate change. in that article he mentions the pez's position on abortion and the health care law. so this isn't just this week. this is something that mayor bloomberg has been thinking about for some time and it is coming as the president finished the bromance tour with chris christie. it is a good week for the president. >> when you read the mayor's reasons, what was he waiting for. there wasn't a single thing that he was in line for? >> it seems to me that he is someone who has a large conception on
of where john mccain's was four years ago. and here in ohio, they believe romney's strength among independents will fuel a win here. in the suburbs surrounding cincinnati, automated phones, dozens dialing at once. listen to this volunteer who reaches a coveted voter who's clearly had their phone ring before. >> you're not being punished. think of it is you are well liked. >> reporter: consider yourself very liked, as they call those voters over and over again. tonight, the governor joined by his wife ann, his five sons and by kid rock, diane, look over my shoulder here tonight. he's rocking out the crowd for thousands. and i got a kick out of this. he just had the crowd singing "sweet home cincinnati." so even kid rock is tailoring his message to the swing voters here in a key battleground. diane. >> all right, thanks so much, david muir reporting in. and now, i want to bring in abc news political consultant, matthew dowd. a veteran of political war rooms for democrats and republicans. four days out. what are you seeing? >> this is a political more on marathon that hasn't been can
washington, d.c. reporter said about all of this. john mccain. >> for days and days they told the american people something that had no basis in fact whatsoever. that is the president of the united states. also, by the way, he said he immediately ordered action to be taken. no action was taken over seven hours now. we find out the secretary of defense decided not to take any action. said the other day this is as bad as watergate but i said nobody died in watergate. this is massive coverup or not acceptable service to american people. >> dana: it doesn't matter election, they will continue to be on this to find out information. a hearing is scheduled for november 15. one of your old pals, i don't know. i guess i can't call her an old pal. she said this is basically a made up story. >> greg: the definition of a made-up story to eleanor cliff, won the fnc beater two reading theth bitter column by maureen dowd. hood ornament of the main stream media. refusing to acknowledge a real scandal. how is she an intel expert? if she was special agent cliff, somehow related to somebody killed, after cal
... that how it goes. he had an infamous moment with john mccain where he said look the election is over. there is a question of whether he's willing to reach a hand across the aisle. >> if you read bob woodward's book you will see he tried to reach across the aisle and boehner pulled back. he signed legislation that band assault weapons. he was pro-choice an passed obama-care years before obama did. >> it wasn't obama-care, it was massachusetts care. what is good for massachusetts is necessarily good for america. >> he was telling everybody it was good for america when he signed it. >> he said it was good more massachusetts. >> he said thank you, president obama or adopting my plan as your plan. he was a liberal in massachusetts. a conservative in the primary, now he's a moderate. he's a chameleon, not a candidate. megyn: a new ad by two powerful unions takes a hard shot at governor romney calling him an economic traitor based on his work at bain capital. you are looking live at the statue of liberty. the southern tip of manhattan could be under 11 feet of water. >> conditions are deter
and a lot of ads to pull because a hurricane. you can only put so many ads. john mccain did the same thing with sarah palin at the end of the last campaign. at a sort of the campaign is that do that are in a little bit of desperation of. there can expand that because they're looking for something to get something extra. >> it does seem a lot more difficult for met romney to reach to 70 than it does for present obama. >> if you look at the delegate totals present obama needs 34 more out of the 85 they're out there. that basically means at the as ohio and wisconsin all he basically needs it is if you won virginia a would be over. he basically needs 10 more delegates. that accommodation of colorado + one or i a lot and nevada. that equals the magic to 70. romney has a much higher bar to clear. he basically has to almost round the table of the swing states. florida colorado early budding is turning his way he has some good markers but without ohio and without wisconsin it becomes a very tough road for him. this will all be about get out and vote for the last two days. >> house is looking for p
. >> senator graham and fellow republicans senators john mccain and kelly ayotte are calling for a select committee of lawmakers, perhaps from both the house and senate -- to investigate the attack. the obama administration has said it wants to wait for an independent board to finish its review before making any assessments about the attack. in the meantime, the president's team, both at the white house and his campaign, say republicans are trying to take advantage of a tragedy. >> as soon as the final report is completed, that will be released. but this is not a time for treating this like a political football, which is what mitt romney and many republicans are doing. the american people deserve and want better than that. >> the state department believes the report will be finished sometime in december. heather? >> heather: molly henneberg live for us from washington, thank you. gregg? >> gregg: taking a look now at the race for the white house, this final weekend before election day. the latest real clear politics average of national polls, take a look at this. president obama barely e
% of the vote. and barack obama just carried ohio four years ago, but because john mccain had really done no outreach to the evangelicals and they were loaded up on our colleague mike huckabee, they stayed home. 300,000 evangelicals in ohio didn't vote in 2008. obama won by 260,000 votes. if they come out in large numbers more romney and ryan in ohio next tuesday, as they did for george bush in 2004 and 2000, i think that romney could take that state. stuart: now, are the evangelicals voting positively for mitt romney? because they like mitt romney? or are they voting negatively against president obama? because they don't like president obama? >> well, the good news for romney is that it's a combination of both. romney has done outreach to them. and richard land of the southern baptist convention has endorsed him. did that yesterday. he met with billy graham about three weeks ago, graham is publicly supporting him. and i'm told that his selection of paul ryan was a huge plus, because ryan is a practicing catholic, very religious, the evangelicals, like paul ryan. on the negative side, the
was at john mccain's birthday party. you have those pictures of him enjoying -- they were playing the guitar and hanging out and then his administration's really horrible response which is ironic because george w. bush's brother, jeb bush, is still popular in florida because of the ee fish ensee with which he would handle florida and a lot of the reason that he is still popular in that state. >> explain the connection between jeb and president obama. >> and president obama very rightly has hired the hurricane spoon guy that jeb bush used in his administration. he was always considered nonpartisan and he was somebody who made jeb look really good and now he's working for fema. he's heading fema for barack obama. >> let's go back to james warren. the question now on the table, here we are the monday before the election, a week out now, it seems to me it's not exactly a time out. for the president is it's a chance to be an executive and for romney to show prudence and recognition as a challenger to the president, not as a president. >> one of his problems is going to be if, in fact, the media i
